I think a lot of people struggle with admitting that they force themselves to finish books they might not want to. I am one of them, so I can totally understand. Maybe it's a book that was recommended to you, or you've already put so much time into reading and there is only a little bit left, or maybe you feel bad because you purchased the book and feel like that money was wasted. That last one is what I struggle with the most, but I try to tell myself that I tried and it's not worth the pain of trying to finish it.
